The Certificate of Business Continuity Institute (CBCI)
The Certificate of Business Continuity Institute (CBCI) is the most widely recognized and held business continuity certification in the world. CBCI was launched in 2007. Those who pass the examination are entitled to use the post nominal designation of CBCI – Certified by the Business Continuity Institute. The Certification is based on a set of standards known as the Certification Standards for Business Continuity professionals, which have been accepted internationally and were developed and published in co-operation with the Disaster Recovery Institute International of the USA. Each element links with the other elements to form the continuum of business continuity management.
The Business Continuity Institute (BCI) was established in 1994 to enable individual members to obtain guidance and support from fellow business continuity practitioners. The BCI provides internationally recognized status to members as professional membership of the BCI demonstrates the members’ competence to carry out business continuity management (BCM) to a consistent high standard. The BCI has more than 5200 members in 90 countries.
